Update 05 August 2020

As we move into the European Summer Period, we are continuing to see varying levels of Covid-19 spikes throughout Europe and around the world.

Despite media coverage regarding lockdowns and many areas entering ‘’Code Orange’’, we are working as normal across the 282 Mainfreight branches in Europe, The Americas, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. We are not seeing any major disruptions to the movement of cargo due to Covid-19.

We continue to keep safety at the forefront of our daily actions to best protect our team members and customers globally, while working hard to keep products moving in our network.

Transport | 22 September 2020

We would like to keep you informed about the influence of the coronavirus on the transport market through this site. Mainfreight keeps a close eye on developments. We take measures to protect employees and customers, but we also try to keep our services as normal as possible.

Unfortunately, in Europe and all over the world there is an increase in the number of corona infections. As a result of these developments, more and more areas are given the color code 'orange' for us. At the moment, this does not affect our services in any way and we do not see any major disruptions for road transport as a result of corona. All European Mainfreight branches are operational. Of course, we follow the advice of the RIVM and the local authorities and keep you informed of any consequences.

The safety of our team members and customers worldwide comes first, which is why we make every effort to ensure this in our daily operations, while doing our utmost to get your goods to their destination. 

If you have any questions, please contact your account manager or our customer service team (customerservice@nl.mainfreight.com).
